Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694445 Sit - Brandon McCarthy Sit+-+Brandon+McCarthy Fantasy Baseball

In Arizona’s rotation, McCarthy has been the weak link. After two starts, he’s posted a 7.71 ERA and has only five strikeouts. It’s difficult to tell anyone to bench a starting pitcher, especially when he’s slated to throw in two games this week.  However, traveling to the Bronx to take on the Yankees and the Rockies in the thin Colorado air doesn’t help his cause this week. McCarthy has started twice at Yankee Stadium and has a 6.94 ERA (he has yet to pitch at Coors Field). – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694444 Sit - Jesus Montero Sit+-+Jesus+Montero Fantasy Baseball

Seattle was more impatient than most fantasy baseball owners as Kelly Shoppach got some time behind the plate and he took advantage. In Shoppach’s last four games, he went 5-9 (.556) with one home run and two runs batted in. Montero responded with a 2-4 performance Sunday. Hopefully, because I’m invested, the back-to-back two-hit games will spark Montero’s bat. However, in nine ABs, he only has one hit against the next three pitchers he will face (Porcell, Fister, and Scherzer). As I mentioned previously in Wieters write-up, if Gattis is available, pull the trigger and bench Montero for now. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694443 Sit - KC Corner Infielders Sit+-+KC+Corner+Infielders Fantasy Baseball

Heading into week three of the baseball season, the Kansas City Royals are tied for first place (7-5) and are doing so with zero help from their first and third basemen. Over the weekend, Hosmer battled tightness in his right quad and Moustakas rested due to his struggles at the dish. Combined, the duo is batting .209 with five RBI and no home runs. Luckily, teammate Billy Butler leads the Royals with two dingers and 11 RBI. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694442 Sit - Rickie Weeks Sit+-+Rickie+Weeks Fantasy Baseball

Yes, the Brewers have numerous injuries (Corey Hart, Aramis Ramirez, Alex Gonzalez, etc.).  Rickie Weeks would do a lot of owners a favor by faking an injury at this point.  In the second game of the season, he went 3-4 with a solo home run and has done nothing since. Last week, he recorded one hit in 22 at-bats (.045). Upcoming, the Brewers host San Francisco, who is in the top-five in ERA and opposing batting average. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694441 Sit - Matt Wieters Sit+-+Matt+Wieters Fantasy Baseball

The Baltimore backstop was the fifth catcher taken in most FOXSports.com leagues (78th overall), but most owners are wishing for a do-over after the first two weeks. This season, Wieters is “hitting” .189 with one homer and three RBI. With John Buck and Evan Gattis producing in fantasy baseball free agency, bench Wieters and look elsewhere until this skid ends. – Adam Meyer

Joy R. Absalon - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/04/14/041413-MLB-fantasy-starts-and-sits-OB-G6_20130414220811270_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/04/14/041413-MLB-fantasy-starts-and-sits-OB-G6_20130414220811270_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694440 Start - Shelby Miller Start+-+Shelby+Miller Fantasy Baseball

In his first two starts of 2013, Miller is 2-0 with a 1.46 ERA and 12 strikeouts. He was dubbed the fifth starter when Chris Carpenter was sidelined with a shoulder injury. After a solid outing against San Francisco (5.1 IP, 2 ER, 4 K), he dominated Milwaukee (7 IP, 0 ER, 8 K). Next on the docket, Pittsburgh, who just finished sweeping the Reds. If Miller can make it through another start with success, he should be owned in 100 percent of leagues (currently, 46 percent). – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694438 Start - Daniel Murphy Start+-+Daniel+Murphy Fantasy Baseball

The Amazin’ Mets are second in MLB in runs scored (69 total), leading the National League, and Daniel Murphy is batting second. This week, he travels to Colorado for a four game series. The Rockies have the third-worst opposing batting average in the National League. Murphy went 12-24 (.500) with six RBI last week. The talent pool at second base is shallow and Murphy can be a solid addition to your lineup. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694437 Start - Chris Carter Start+-+Chris+Carter Fantasy Baseball

If you scored well on your college SAT or ACT, the following analogy should hit home.  The NFL's Cris Carter is to touchdowns as MLB"s Chris Carter is to home runs.  In his last five games he’s hit four home runs with seven RBI and a .462 average for the week. Yet, Carter is only owned in 3.7 percent of FOXSports.com leagues. He’s batting clean-up for the ‘Stros and will face Oakland and Cleveland this week. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694435 Start - Matt Carpenter Start+-+Matt+Carpenter Fantasy Baseball

Owned in 70 percent of FOXSports.com leagues, Carpenter has been on a tear. He’s batting .409 with eight runs and five RBI the past seven days. This week, he’ll face the Pirates and a Phillies team with the fifth-worst ERA in baseball. Carpenter’s eligibility at first and third base (second base on other sites) makes him even more attractive to fantasy baseball owners. – Adam Meyer

Brad Barr - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/04/14/041413-MLB-fantasy-starts-and-sits-OB-G2_20130414220631252_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2013/04/14/041413-MLB-fantasy-starts-and-sits-OB-G2_20130414220631252_107_80.JPG
Fantasy Baseball 2187 43 Top 10 Fantasy Baseball Start and Sits: Week 3 31694434 Start - Brandon Moss Start+-+Brandon+Moss Fantasy Baseball

Last week I suggested two Athletics (Jed Lowrie and Coco Crisp) to start, this week only one made the cut. Oakland leads the league in runs scored.  So, they’re a good source of fantasy baseball talent. With Yoenis Cespedes on the DL and the day-to-day absence of Coco Crisp, Moss moves to fifth in the batting order. Last week, he hit .346, belting two home runs, and 10 RBI. The first base option is only secured in 21 percent of FOXSports.com leagues. – Adam Meyer
